    Raised in Oklahoma and Missouri and of part Cherokee ancestry, Joe Neil Beeler received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kansas State Teachers College and continued his studies at the Art Center School in Los Angeles. Beeler became one of the nation's most prolific and well known western artists in the late 20th century and his work has won numerous awards for excellence and many now reside in museums and prestigious private collections across the nation. Major exhibitions of his work have been held at the Gilcrease Institute, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, The Whitney Gallery of Western Art, the C.M. Russell Museum, the Montana Historical Society and the Cowboy Artists of America Museum. Plains warriors and wagon train was likely painted in the early 1960s after Beeler's highly successful one man exhibition at the Thomas Gilcrease Museum and prior to the artist becoming one of the original founders of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America in Arizona in 1965.
